“Brill holiday”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

I felt I had to review the Karpathios, Pefkos after reading some of the reviews.
We were in the rooms under the pool which you will get if you book with Olympic, the white ones advertised in the brochure are fot Thomas Cook and Thompson with only 4 allocated to Olympic. The rooms under the pool were brilliant value, everything you needed, great view cleaned every day. The pool was very clean, the bar was ok, cheap the whole place was verry good. Like in the brochure there is a steep hill up to the property, which was a bit of a killer in the heat, but did not spoil a thing. I would highly recommend this property for an inexpensive holiday. This was 100% better than the place we stayed in Pefkos last Year

Room Tip: Under the pool were great

Hi, booked holiday through olympic -very cheap last minute deal-then read reviews !! DO NOT be put off with them, as we were pleasantly surprised, we did get the rooms under the pool, but we loved them as they had the most amazing views out to the beach and sea, very chilled sitting their with the bottle or 2 of vino at night time.Not much variety for food at the bar-but loads of choice in town and very reasonable too as you could get a 3 course meal for just under 8 euros.
The beer at the accomodation was the cheapest in pefkos at 2 euros for a large draught beer.
Apartments cleaned daily by evaline who also was the bar staff from 5pm onwards, and she never stopped, there were some ants but they were no major problem.
Nice basic accomodation for the price paid-we stayed at a 3 star last year in pefkos that was'nt as nice, would go again if the price was right

We booked this holiday without first reviewing the accommodation, and after reading the reviews was extremely worried that we had made a mistake, how wrong could we have been.
When we arrived we were given 1 of the top floor white rooms, and it was wonderful. Had a problem with the toilet flush but this was fixed within hours of arriving, so no complaints. Evalena, who was the manager, barmaid, cleaner in fact think she did everything, was wonderful, she cleaned the rooms everday apart from Sunday which is her day of rest. The bedding and towels were changed everyday. Pool area was nice, and also the bar, although a bit limited when it came to food, but was the cheapest in Pefkos.
Yes there is a very steep hill that we nicknamed "Cardiac hill" and this would not be suitable for elderley or infirm people, but there are taxis from the town if you need them.
The only point we would like to make is the air conditioning isnt brilliant as the units seem to be in the wrong places.
We spoke to several people who had all read the previous reviews and like us was expecting a hellhole, but we were all very plesantly suprised.

Once again thanks to Evalena she was brilliant, and we would definately go again.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the white rooms, the views are amazing.

We got the studios on a very cheap last minute deal, after reading some of the reviews I was thinking that maybe I should have paid more. However when we got there it had everything you needed and was clean and the bed was comfy the staff were good and helpful too. I think sometimes people complain just for the sake of it, its not a 5 star resort so don't expect it.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the white rooms on the first floor, they get the most sun.

If you go to Greece on a regular basis then you'll know what to expect... basic accommodation, shower, wardrobe, bed, sink and a good view is all you really need. Unfortunately the bathroom was a little pongy, maybe down to the fact there was no window in there, and there were no draws at all so we had to live out of the case a little. We were in a ground floor room which meant me shared the terrace with others but that wasn't a massive problem, I should imagine one of the 1st or 2nd floor ones would have been a bit nicer. The pool are was nice, but could have been looked after little better. As for Pefkos as a resort, far too spoiled by tourism, too many John Smith's and Strongbow signs, the locals seemed genuinely shocked when we spoke a bit of Greek to them, don't think this is something they are used to. Luckily for us Lindos is a cheap, ten minute bus ride away and was a great place to go at night for romantic rooftop meal and some Mythos and Cocktails after.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor rooms if you can.

after getting a great deal for a week in sept 2011, like others, we were prepared after reading previous reviews to have to move after the first night. we were allocated one of the rooms under the pool. clean and simple self catering accomodation with the option of air con and a safe for a small fee. rooms cleaned daily and linen changes a couple of times in the week. the pool area was lovely. the pool bar does indeed have the cheapest draught beer, the food choices are very limited. we did see a few ants, but a quick squirt of raid on day1 and didnt see anymore all week. views are great. i would revisit these apartments, even the walk up the drive everynight didnt put us off, and neither would paying more to stay here. we had a great holiday that was excellent value.

I think some people want 5 star accomodation for 2 star price. I've just got back and had a great time. Room was good with great views. Clean. Some ants but if you dont drop food you dont see ants in my experience!
My shower was broke on arrival, it was fixed in about 3 hours so no complaints there.

Not sure if I would have been as happy in the rooms under the pool but I didnt here any complaints for the 2 weeks we were there.
Location is great, only 2 yds from all main resteraunts and bars, and due to the steep slope is far enough away to be quiet.
The hill was a bit to steep for some older guests,

Room Tip: Ask for the high rooms with sea views.
